Cessiri Group's story

Yacouba is the one wearing the hat, holding the horn of the ram in the photo. Yacouba is a sheep and cow farmer. He is a Malian, 46 years old, married, and the father of six children. They range in age from 3-20 years, and three are in school. His wife is a housewife.

He has been doing this job for 12 years. He stocks up and sells animals in the weekly fairs in his town. Yacouba could have an expected profit of 20,000-30,000 West African Francs per head. Now he has four heads of cattle that he is taking care of, with veterinary care. After the sales, the profit generated by this business will allow him to take charge of medical costs, food security, and the educational fees of his family. He is generous and has a good reputation in the village. Yacouba hopes to progress his business with RMCR to earn more.
